UK production and distribution company Talking Drum Entertainment is joining forces with South Africa’s 1Take Media to finance and co-produce ‘Incensed,’ an Action Crime Drama set in South Africa, the UK and Nigeria.
The contemporary feature film tells the story of a happily married woman whose life is turned upside down by her husband’s fraudulent multi-million dollar dealings with a powerful international money laundering syndicate. The film is scheduled for release in 2019 and principal photography will take place in London, Lagos and Durban with a release date set for the latter part of 2019.
Producer Dapo Oshiyemi of Talking Drum Entertainment said “We are really looking forward to working with our friends at 1Take Media to present ‘Incensed’ to audiences around the world, as we believe people of all ages and backgrounds will respond positively to the exciting, fresh material.”
“Doing ‘Incensed’ fits in perfectly with 1Take Media’s vision of creating and producing more work that breaks geographical and cultural boundaries. We are excited about the prospect of using the best of talents in South Africa, the UK and Nigeria as it presents an amazing opportunity for a really incredible film,” added Mickey Madoda Dube, Co-producer of 1Take Media. “This will be the first of many co-productions we aim to accomplish with Talking Drum Entertainment in an effort to deliver a unique global film product with an African sensibility.”
